good eats now {AL}

Saturday was the first day for the Pepper Place Market this year.  Local farmers set up to sell fresh produce at the historic Pepper Place complex {once the Dr. Pepper syrup plant}. You can enjoy live music, crafts, cooking demos, and wine tastings.  When {e} lived here, we would go to the market every Saturday, get our mango teas, and eat goodies being sampled by local cafes & bakeries.  We always had so much fun – miss you girl!

Following is a list of local produce in season & available at the market: arugula, asparagus, beets, broccoli, cabbage, fava beans, leeks, nettles, peas, radishes, rhubarb, spinach, strawberries, summer squash, zucchini, + more.  

I loaded up on strawberries and found a recipe for lemon rosemary cake with strawberry compote from Sunday Suppers.  Wish I had a piece right now!
